Salary & Compensation

The Stennis Institute offers a specialized service for Salary & Compensation Studies. Along with the Biennial Mississippi Municipal Salary Survey, The Institute has conducted similar studies for individual municipalities and communities.

About Our Studies

Personnel matters are of central importance to the operation of today’s municipal government. Indeed, the efficiency and effectiveness of a municipal government sits squarely on the shoulders of its personnel system.

These systems marked by arbitrary compensation levels, capricious decisions regarding promotion and termination, or wildly disparate management styles can cripple a municipality’s operation and lead to poor service delivery. In the past, many municipal governments have operated with only rudimentary personnel systems, or in some cases, without a personnel system of any type.

As increased citizen expectations related to the volume and quality of municipal service delivery increase the need for fair and equitable personnel systems increases as well.
